Cyberpunk 2077 Event Pushed Back Amid Protests Against Police Brutality
Fans were looking forward to learn more about the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 digital event next week, but it appears that they will need to wait a bit longer. CD Projekt RED recently took to Twitter to reveal that they are postponing the event until later this month.
People across the globe have been taking to the streets to protest police brutality following the murder of George Floyd at the hands of police, and in a time that it is best to speak up in support of and listen to the Black Lives Matter movement, the Cyberpunk 2077 devs thought it would be better to discuss more important topics than their upcoming game. This is what they had to say:
We decided to move Night City Wire to Jun 25th. We still look forward to sharing new information about CP’77, but more important discussions are happening right now and we want them to be heard. We wholeheartedly stand against racism, intolerance and violence. Black Lives Matter.

“We still look forward to sharing new information about CP’77, but more important discussions are happening right now and we want them to be heard,” reads the tweet above from the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account. “We wholeheartedly stand against racism, intolerance and violence. Black Lives Matter.”
As can be seen in the tweet above, the Cyberpunk 2077 event will now be taking place on June 25th. Several people found it prudent to reply to the tweet, claiming that CDPR is somehow postponing the event to make more money, despite the fact that we will likely just be receiving a gameplay trailer and details about the game. Here’s to hoping those same people use this time wisely to educate themselves.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set to arrive on September 17th for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
